As promised - a short about bacon fat! In America animal fats were used as a source of glycerin, which went into making nitro glycerin,which of course is used to make explosives. Housewives were encouraged to save their food grease in a tin. Once they had a pound they took it to their local butcher who would give them cash or coupons for it.
Here we have Minnie and Pluto saving their bacon fat. It's the only time you'll see Mickey in uniform, which you'll just catch a glimpse of in a photo on the wall.
